And the Core of Mah may just be one of those. Perhaps his next goal is to try and steal Bik's egg, then? Great, Zaros' plan is try and capture Elder God eggs and see which one is "compatible" with him.

If we are carrying on with the flame and star analogy, I think Zaros will burn himself out. The wording suggests that he is burning super hot, and suddenly everything goes dark - like a fire being snuffed out?

Maybe the energy will overwhelm him and destroy him completely. Or maybe he will have to destroy himself to be reborn as an Elder God.

Maybe the great sadness is his pain at being rejected by Jas. Becoming an Elder God had always been the height of his ambition - practically his life's work. The sadness ends because he either becomes an elder god or reaches the same level of power. So he has a few moments of satisfaction to think to himself: "There, I've finally done it." Then he dies happy and possibly(?) gets reborn.

Edit: I just had another theory that adds to this.

When you revive Zaros, you either give him a light simulcram or a dark one. The light one rejects him, because he has dark energy.

Here's the thing though. Mah created Zaros and Seren with equal power. So she must have equal amounts of both light and dark energy. I would assume this is the same for all elder gods.

But Zaros's body is only compatible with dark energy. So it would only stand to reason that a dark simulcram would reject the light half of elder godhood. But instead of slowly seeping out out of his body, it would all explode simply because that is such a vast quantity of energy compared to how much power he has now. A light simulcram would probably have a similar and possibly worse reaction to the dark half.

He needs a new body, but who is going to make it for him? The Elder Gods won't. And where will he get the energy? Mah is dead, so that source of power is tapped out.

I think he'll attempt to ascend, and die in the process, maybe killed by Seren. When Jas said that Seren has the potential to become more, it made me think that *maybe* she'll ascend, help fix up the universe, and then suicide in an epic cutscene that will make us all cry.

I'm thinking Jas wasn't the only one to lay an egg.

He can certainly continue his goal, and there are at least 4 more chances.

I wonder what he's gone looking for though?


(I haven't finished the quest, so I apologize if I'm missing details here)

I know that Bik art was just a concept, but perhaps Zaros will actually appear in that quest? Or perhaps he'll try to do more with the Core of Mah.
there's a few more eggs he could potentially use laying around somewhere.


Uh, no. The Stone of Jas is not some random egg laid by an Elder God, it was specifically created by Jas as a catalyst to assist in the goals of the Elder Gods. If there were more of them just sitting around somewhere, Jas would have mentioned them when asked about where ALL of the elder artifacts are (since if another elder god made a stone like Jas, it would be an artifact).

There is no "Stone of Bik" or anything like that. The Stone of Jas was the only catalyst they needed.

Are you saying that it's impossible to hard boil a second egg to make another? Sure, the elders might not do that, but that doesn't mean Zaros wouldn't try to do it himself.
